That's awesome! Katie and I have been looking at all kinds of little camping trailer and this one has been on our short list of ones we're very interested in.

Can't wait to hear some updates and experiences - and see more pics!

My wife has been dreaming of "van life". So this was the compromise! We researched a lot into the offroad ones like the Litle Guy Rough Rider but its waaay too expensive for the small amount of lift you get.

The 5 wide and 6 wide can be lifted just like to Rough Rider for barely any money at all! So this was our choice since it already had all the basics we would have ordered from factory.

Upgrades to come:

Lift
Larger tires
Paint to match Sandy
Kitchen storage
E brakes
Shade Awning

Yea Jim I did buy it local, Toms Camperland!

It's a 2016 very lightly used.

I'll take some better pics. Probably going out next weekend.

That is cool, I see them all the time but never really paid attention to details. I would like one of those when I grow up... oh and when I learn to back a trailer. Kitchen in the back is a winner.
